Good afternoon team .... hope all is doing well .

Yes Christie it is one of Leslie's ... it is called belly blasting and it is fun. I need something that i could do at home on occasions and i can follow her lol. I have zero coordination so it has to be something simple for me. but it is calorie blasting and better than sitting on my tush so i am not complaining. I did day 1 of my walk / jog program and the foot held up alright. So maybe that is a good sign . I dont have aspirations of winning a 5 k or anything close to that but the last time i did one it took me 41 minutes so i want to see if i can improve on that .

I hope you enjoy your camping trip it sounds like a lot of fun. oh and not to mention yummy also lol ....

Have a great day everyone !!!

Darlene, is the dvd that you are doing a leslie sansone one? I have a few of her walk away the pounds that I used to do and I loved them, actually burnt a lot of calories doing them according to my HRM. I hope your foot does ok and does not cause you any pain.

Sparkflash, hope your "sleeps" till your road trip go by quickly for you. We are going to the beach in a few weeks and I am getting excited about it.

So today my daughter and I baked, let me tell you she loves to bake and we have so many sweets to take camping that we can feed the whole campground. We made zucchini bread, zucchini bars with cream cheese icing, peanut butter pies, and apple dumplings. I better do extra hiking and bike riding this weekend to burn off all the extra calories, haha.

Well hope everyone had a great day. I am heading to bed a little early tonight all that baking must have made me tired. Have a great night !!

~Christy~

Good afternoon team ... today has been one of those day when i just wished i stayed in bed. I didnt start the grass because it looked like it was going to rain. I did buy a new leslie sansone walking dvd to try and change up a little since it is so hot outside.

Christie sounds like a nice walk. I would think that the farmers market would have green tomatoes but it sounds like a good outing even if they dont. You are doing fine on your cardio.

hope everyone is having a good day !!!

Good Afternoon everyone

I went for my blood work and then groceries this morning, came home got the weed eating done and then took a walk it is so nice outside not to hot and humid just right for walking, there must be a storm coming in though because I seen a lot of wildlife on the move wish I would have had my camera with me there were 2 doe and 3 fawn in the field. So far this week I now have 73 minutes in, to bad they did do this last week when I push mowed for days haha.

I bought some more zucchini today, I wish they would sell green tomatoes at my grocery store. Maybe I need to make a trip to my farmers market wonder if they would have any?

Hope everyone is having a great day

Christy I know your pain tonight ... i went to the gym for pool early then game home started the laundry and then finished up my carpets and went back to gym with my son for our back and bicep workout and the only reason I am still awake right now is my husband is grilling and i have to wait to eat dinner other wise i would be sleeping lol ... Christie treat yourself to some " me time" while your daughter is away .

This week challenge is unlimited cardio minutes so whatever cardio you do that is your points ... if you do 300 minutes then you get 300 points ... the bonus is one 30 minute yoga workout for 20 points . they were just late getting it out sorry for the delay .

Have a great evening everyone !!!!

Darlene you have way more energy than I do, after I got done scrubbing carpets there was no way I could have made it to the gym I was beat the backs of my legs hurt so bad but it may have been a combo of push mowing and scrubbing that did me in haha

I wish I had more tomatoes, that was the last jar that I had canned from last year, unfortunately my garden is not producing any veggies yet but they are slowly coming. I had zucchini fritters for lunch today. I take grated zucchini, egg, garlic powder, mozzarella cheese and flour mix it all together and then use pan on my electric skillet and "fry" little pancake like zucchini patties they are so good.

Did I miss the challenge for this week ? I can not find an email and I check the challenge repost in the other team and I am not seeing it, don't know if I am missing it or if it has not been posted yet.

Well my daughter left with her grandma today to go camping with the horses for 3 days, so I will be alone while the boys are at work its going to be quiet here the next few days I already feel lost emoticon

I had more tomatoes last night lol ... those things are addictive ... It is possible for your oven to not heat evenly and you are right that sounds like what is happening also.

I started on the carpet today .. got the living room and dinning room mostly done .. but yes it does wear you out quickly but i moved all the furniture and rearranged also . mopped the kitchen and went to the gym for leg strength training and i have a evening routine to do before I shower again .. but i wont have any trouble sleeping tonight at all . Right now working on dinner . I am not sure how spark people wants me to eat more than 2200 calories a day when I cant seem to get past 1200 but oh well that is just something that isnt going to happen i dont think. I dont like the whole add calories as you add your fitness on the tracker.

I hope everyone is having a great day !!!

All this talk about these veggies yesterday did me in. We had fried green tomatoes with our dinner last night, they were so good emoticon

My daughter and I baked zucchini bread yesterday, the one loaf turned out perfect the other loaf the outside was over done and inside was still raw... not sure what happened they were both in glass pans side by side in the oven at the same time. I am thinking maybe my oven is not heating evenly (is that even possible?) but oh well the one loaf was very good.

Today Im working on laundry, and starting to get the camper packed again, we are leaving Friday for the weekend. I will be getting groceries I think on Wednesday and then doing what baking needs done so this week will be busy around here getting everything ready to go.

Hope everyone is having a good day emoticon

Good morning everyone !!!

Christie he did buy the one I have been wanting since my son brought the dog home; It is the Bissell pet with a water heater on it. So I am not complaining. The one I had was just to small for the amount of space of carpet we had to clean. I am actually looking forward to using it tomorrow. It is just extra calories burned lol . I havent been able to start the grass since it stormed most of yesterday . but hopefully it dries out soon . so i get it done before it gets to bad again .

When I do the oven fried okra it is by itself ... but i also do stewed okra and tomatoes but that is red tomatoes not green . You can get recipes for both here on spark people. I love the yellow squash with onions ... today i am going to do something with the butternut squash i bought. I would like to do some hash browns and then freeze some for oven fries later . This morning I am doing laundry , did the dusting and vacuuming while watching my grandsons .. if they go home early enough I plan on going to the gym but not sure of that yet.

Hope everyone has a great day !!!! emoticon

Darlene I love my carpet scrubber the carpets look like new again they have that "fluffy" feeling back and all the little stains are gone haha

I have never tried okra, do you cook it with the tomatoes or by itself ? I used to can green tomatoes just slice and can them then we could eat fried green tomatoes all year, I also love to put green tomatoes in with cauliflower, onion, carrots, and hot peppers and can a pickled dill veggie mix. I can not wait for my garden to start getting veggies it was planted late and we are just now started to get little veggies out there. I love my yellow squash and zucchini.

Yesterday I took it easy, I did push mow for about an hour and then the rain broke loose. We went to friends for dinner and had a great evening just relaxing and bs'ing.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday, they are calling for rain again today so looks like a good day to watch some movies and play board games with my family.

If your males do not clean up, do what a friend of mine did. She got a cleaning lady and made the messy ones pay for it...lol.
Another friend whose husband always trailed clothes through the house got a huge surprise when things were picked up by the time he got home from work each day. His wife had been collecting them in green garbage bags and placing them in the garage and not telling him. He assumed she had taken them to the cleaners. Then the day came when he had not much in his closet to wear and he asked about his laundry. She told him what she had been doing and he looked panic stricken. He had place all the 'garbage' bags at the curb and stood there watching in horror as the garbage men loaded them into the truck and moved on down the street. My friend never had a problem after that.

I have not been eating much raw food, I had a salad yesterday for lunch, smoothie for breakfast today and then fruit salad for lunch, so I just need to get my pics uploaded and a blog done that's easier said than done for me these days haha

Darlene I am still scrubbing carpets today I did the living room which is a pretty good size room its 16 X 24 and then I got to push mow for 4 hours because my riding mower is broke again ... I am so tired of that thing

You can bet the males in my house did not even attempt to clean anything up I can tell every move they made haha they leave a little trail of either dirty clothes or dishes but never fear they wouldn't dream of cleaning up haha

Hope everyone is having a good week, tomorrow is Friday emoticon Im ready for the weekend and a little down time

I am afraid to tell you but i dont eat a lot of raw food ... i have had salad and fruit but as far as meals go other than just fruit for breakfast or a salad for lunch there isnt much to tell lol .... I am up to a 120 pushups at a time so that is pretty cool.

Today i did the grocery shopping and house cleaning ... then did some step aerobics ... so now working on dinner ....

Christie since you did your carpets yesterday and I am late today You can come do mine tomorrow emoticon You are brave leaving two males alone in the house for a week bless your heart i bet that was a chore to clean up . or worst they tried to do it for you lol ...

Hope everyone is having a great day !!!!

Darlene I completely understand on the distractions, I am the same way it is horrible I will walk into a room and forget what the heck I was doing...haha

I am trying to get caught up on my house work as well, all the laundry from being gone for a week is bad enough but then I came home to a house where my husband and teenage son had came and gone all week long, of course neither of them can put anything away. I did take time to get in the pool yesterday of course it needed to be cleaned (so that was a good excuse to be in there haha)

Today I have been scrubbing carpets, I need to go mow but its cloudy and Im afraid that as soon as I start it will rain so I may just wait till tomorrow.

Hope you are having a great day, I am going to make a salad for lunch, I am using cider vinegar and olive oil for the dressing (I hope those will both count as a raw food?)

Good afternoon everyone, sorry I have not been around things got crazy here this past week. My daughter shows horses for 4h and this week was our county fair so we took the horses and camper to the fair grounds for the week which is only about 10 miles from home but things were so busy I was not able to get home through the week, so not only was I trying to cope with the loss of my grandmother last week, we had horse shows for 4h that needed to be done, and I spent most of the week in a bit of a fog.

But I am back now and ready to do this again, I love my salads, and my garden finally has some veggies ready so I should be able to complete this weeks challenges with no problem, sorry I have been letting the team down the past few weeks those of you who know me know that I am really trying because usually by this time of summer I am long gone and not heard from again until late fall, so I am making small progress.

I hope everyone is having a good week emoticon

Hi sparky pals. After my reunion in August Im going to s tart saving for my computer. So much easier to spark with one then on this phone. Ok 3 raw meals should be easy enough. I have Greek yogurt, frozen fruit and salad in frige. Cucumber sandwiches on a hot day a r e yummy.
Have had troubles with the other challenges because the one I had a small chance in accomplishing didn't show up when I hit link. O well
Work is getting better sorta. I have new shoes, but am still debating on if i need the wide or regular. The shoes arnt cheap and I want to make sure they will help me become more human.
Hope all are well. Going to fill in blanks on tracker

Good afternoon everyone !!! I went to the gym for pool time this morning . Did the laundry and have gotten caught up on the housework while catching up here on Spark People. I did have a 2 pound loss this week so now we might be back on track some. It rained today so didnt get to do any outside work . I am tired of trying to work around the weather but at least it isnt a drought .

Good afternoon everyone !!! I havent had much energy today, I think I over did it a bit yesterday . I cut the grass for three hours. I think it just took more out of me then I thought but the yard sure looks good finally . This weekend I plan on working on cutting back some trees on the fence line providing that there is no more rain for a few days. My washing machine is on the fritz so just another day in wonderful Neverland !!!

Hope everyone is having a good day and has a great weekend emoticon

Good kinda afternoon everyone !!! I am just taking a break from cutting the grass . i got about a quarter of it cut lets hope that mother nature gives me a bit to get the rest done. It is 88 degrees outside but feels like a hundred already. Hey but i burnt off 400 calories in that hour emoticon I also went to the gym early this morning for 75 minutes in the pool. Who knows maybe i will loose weight this week at this rate. Just trying to stay busy and not worry about it emoticon

Hope everyone is having a good week emoticon

Darlene I hope you get some dry weather soon, finally after weeks of rain we have been pretty dry this week with just a few pop up showers in the afternoon from the humidity.

My week has been pretty emotional, we got the call earlier in the week that my Grandmas kidney were starting to shut down, we ended up losing her on Friday evening emoticon I know she is in a better place and no longer suffering, when I seen her Friday morning she was struggling to breath and it was so hard to see her that way, but it still does not make the loss any easier. Please keep my family in your thoughts as these next couple of days are going to be very hard as we say our final good byes.

~Christy~

Good afternoon everyone !!!

Yesterday evening we had a sever thunderstorm come up and lightning struck our water pump. It was this morning before we had running water again. this followed a leak in the roof so we had to temporarily fix that because well it isnt like you can do a roof job in the rain. It has been a rough couple of days but outside of the lingering headache I am none the worst. just frustrated is all. I have done good though and not ate my sorrows away although Chocolate cake sounds pretty good right now lol that is why there is non here lol.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend emoticon

Good afternoon everyone ... hope the day is going good for everyone.

I went to the gym early for a great legs workout. Came home and did some cleaning, Now working on Laundry. In between i went out and did the bills and bought groceries. So all in all it has been a busy day but I need the distraction right now. It hasnt rained today thank goodness since the roof sprung a leak yesterday.

Christie my day sounds about like yours but i cant cut the grass as it is to wet. I will be glad when it dries out whenever that is going to be. My yard looks horrible.

Have a great evening everyone and dont forget to weight in tomorrow emoticon

Good Friday Morning, I hope everyone has had a great week.

We have finally had a little sun between the rain but I will take what I can get at this point haha. This weeks challenge was good for me, I had forgotten how much I used to love my strength training, I would rather do it than cardio. Of course after not doing it for so long I am feeling it my shoulders and knees are sore today but its a good sore. emoticon

Well I am off to get a few groceries and then push mow so I can hopefully spend the afternoon in the pool emoticon

Have a wonderful day emoticon emoticon

Good morning everyone .... I went to the gym this morning and did water workout. I pushed it really hard to try and work off some emotions i am dealing with. Came home and did cleaning and now working on the laundry. later i will be going back to the gym with my son again I think he said we will be doing back and biceps today. I am very sure he thinks I am insured for a lot because his workouts are killing me lol. But I will admit I am enjoying the time with him after the gym we are going to walking track. now if he would do the pool with me then all would be good lol .

Linda walking for two hours will certainly give you an appetite. I am glad you enjoyed your meal. emoticon

Christie anytime we take a trip it seems that it takes for ever to get ready and recover from it. I am sure you will get caught up soon. and yes the weather has been crazy this year . Right now it is blue skies and sunshine and this afternoon and evening it suppose to be raining again ... my yard looks like a rice hay field.

Oh well I am sure I have bored you all enough lol ... have a great one emoticon

Linda I hope you enjoyed your beautiful weather today.

Darlene I hope it stops raining soon in your area, the weather has been crazy this year.

The weather was nice here today for a change, it was a little humid but not to bad. I spent the day doing laundry and cleaning, how can camping be so much work, I swear I spend more time packing and unpacking than we actually do camping haha but its all worth.

Happy Monday! I am so glad that hubby and I walked for over 2 hours today. We went out to dinner and ate like pigs. Ugh! It serves me right that I am now sick from eating so much.

It was 96 degrees today and beautiful. I guess the hot weather is bringing us a shower this evening.

Good rainy afternoon .. to say I am tired of the rain is an understatement. it is storming again as I type this . I am going to need a boat before long lol . I went to the gym with my son again today. We did legs and abs . Phew his leg workout is extreme for my little fat legs but it was a good workout. Then we went to the beach he jogged and I rode my bike that was nice and thankfully we didnt get wet lol.

Christie no worries about the miss weigh in. You are allowed to miss one or two. The others have not posted since we started the season.

Hope everyone is having a good day where you are emoticon

Good Morning

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday emoticon emoticon

Sorry I missed the weigh in this week ladies, we went camping had left last Wednesday and came home late Saturday evening, I had all intentions of weighing in when I got home on Saturday but as luck with the weather would have it here lately we got hit with a bad storm as just as we were getting home and lost our power for over 8 hours. I heard there was a tornado that touched down about 2 miles from our home (which is pretty unheard of in our area) there are a lot of trees uprooted and broke off but Im not sure if it was a tornado.

I am looking forward to the challenge this week, I had a friend on here who used to do a food/exercise blog and I loved it, so this will give me a good reason to try it on my own.

Have a great day

~Christy~

Good morning everyone .... Not much going on today . I have done some household chores. I am not cooking today there are plenty of left overs for dinner tonight. I will go to the gym for some strength training today and my cardio will be bike riding late this evening.

We have 4 members that have not posted the first weight for the challenge so if i understand correctly now they dont count toward our points or weights so it is important that you post you weight and points weekly even if you are early.

Have a wonderful day everyone emoticon

It is raining off and on still and that will continue for a few days I hate the rainy months. hopefully everyone else is having a great weekend as well emoticon

Good morning Ladies ... Happy belated Fourth of July emoticon

I have been on sort of a reset mode as of lately . It happens when i really get after a goal, it wears me out lol. You can only push so hard for so long and then your body and your mind say Woooooooo wait a minute here and let me catch up with your heart. If i could get my metabolism to catch up with my heart's desirexx i would be on the cover of Vogue by now lol. So for me the month of July is going to spent getting back on track and trying to reset my program as to meet the goals i have.

Hope everyone is doing well ... and dont forget to weigh in tomorrow emoticon
